Hi all, I'm working on a similar but opensource solution.
you can see more information and a demonstration here.
Magic Zoom is free to use if your website is non-profit. If it is a commercial site, then there is a license fee.
I suspect this condition is incompatible with the GPL under which Gallery is released.
We've released an updated version of Magic Zoom for Gallery.
- Choose to use image zooming on either the photo page or the album page.
- Option to turn on/off zooming for a particular album.
- Option to add a link to the photo/album page after the image.
We also fixed these bugs:
- Sometimes a random image was zoomed.
- Bug with zooming navigation image.
- Bug with the 'loading zoom' animation in multiple galleries.
